On Saturday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called UN Secretary-General António Guterres’ decision to travel to Moscow two days before leaving Kiev “illogical.”
“It is wrong to go first to Russia and then to Ukraine. There is no justice or logic in that order,” Zelenski said at a news conference in the center of Kiev at the metro station Agence France Press.
The Secretary-General of the United Nations (UN) António Guterres will visit Moscow on April 26 in the Russian Federation, where he will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
According to the UN, Guterres will hold a working meeting and lunch in Moscow with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, and he will be received by President Vladimir Putin.
A spokesman for the UN chief announced today that António Guterres will visit Ukraine next week after meeting with Putin in Moscow.
“The Secretary-General will visit Ukraine next week. He will have a working meeting with Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba and will be received by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on April 28,” reads a note sent to news agencies.
